My CongressmanSupported the Attempted Coup

Yes, my Congressman joined the attempted coup by the Great Leader in front of the Supreme Court this week by signing on to thee Texas / Red state suit to have the votes of Pennsylvania. Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan invalidated.

Gus Bilirakis represents my district, the Florida 12th Congressional District.  Two other Florida representatives including Mario Diaz-Balart of Miami also signed on.  Calling the pandemic a fraud, he was the first member to test positive in Congress.

Diaz-Balart is always so concerned about repression in  Cuba but apparently has no problem with over turning an election and imposing it here.

Back to my Congressman.

Bilirakis won this district with 66% of the vote here.  He has been in the House since 2006. jumping into the race after his father Michael announced his retirement from Congress after 24 years.

Born in Tarpon Springs. America’s largest Greek community, he ahs faced no substantial opposition. His seat has never been in danger.  He has worked hard for veterans.  And he loves to tout how he works in “a bipartisan way.”

So why did he shame himself by signing on to Trump’s coup attempt? And be assured it was an obvious coup attempt, averted only by the votes of the 3 Justices he appointed.

Congressman Bilirakis, do you really believe Trump won then election?  That he will not continue in office due to massive voter fraud?

Really?  If you do you are dumber than I thought possible for a man in your position.

If you don’t , if you believe Trump lost, why did you sign on to an attempt to overthrow   the election?  Your support for Trump and the Texas / Red state suit was a direct attack on our democratic institutions.  You quietly signed on.  There is no mention of your support on your website.

And I’m sure after Trump leaves office you will never mention your support again, afraid if you did not support the coup attempt you might draw a primary challenger from the Trump nest you have helped create.

Can you not see you lent your support to a would be tin pot dictator, a fascist.

Your quiet support to curry favor with the increasing radical right while touting your work for veterans  is despicable.

Congressman, you have no honor.

Shame on you.

And if I am still around in 2022 I won’t forget.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

  2. I see that Miami-Dade Rep. Mario Diaz Balart also signed on for the coup. I thought he abandoned his homeland for democracy.

  3. Lordy, lordy. I feel for you living there, I really do. I’m surrounded by Brexiteers and conspiracy theorists who refuse to wear masks. Onwards, upwards! We will defeat those who have brainwashed so many!

    “Gym” Jordan is our 4th Ohio District Congresscritter here in the mist gerrymandered District that seem to follow an old Indian trail from central Ohio all the way to Lake Erie. I’m sorry but yours isn’t the worst, he’s just a normal Republican by Jordan standards.

    Worried about Cuba? But not the country you were born in and took an oath to do right by it. It is this kind of stupidity that caused Castro to rebel against the Cubans who went to Miami.

  6. What it comes down to is that they are more scared of Trump than of violating the constitution.

  7. The framers of the Constitution anticipated a Trump and provided for it. They did not anticipate the level of cowardice that many — though not all — of the Republican legislative “leaders” showed this week. Shameful, shameful, shameful.
